You won't give a guy with cancer money, even if it required no money of your own? Even if it just required you to click one or two buttons? Because it's not like viewing a link takes away money from your bank account.

I'm not even talking about Zach Sobiech here any more. If St. Jude's hospital asked you to just visit their website, that every view their website received earned them a little amount of money so they could continue their work, you wouldn't do it because you "never met the kid" (kids in this case)? I never do this, just pick one point and ignore everything else, but damn, I can't help myself. What you posted just reeks of selfishness beyond measure.
It's shady. It isn't about it costing no money of my own, it's the principle. It honestly wouldn't hurt me to give money to people that panhandle me every single day in Los Angeles, but that isn't my job. Sure, it's selfish if you want to look at it that way. Ever heard the saying there's no such thing as altruism?

Looking out for your self is the only logical step you can ever take, ever. In this case, I am not going to contribute one cent to some scumbag who thinks he doesn't have to work and can get money off administrating a YouTube channel - especially one who tries to use my guilt to get me to click on his videos.

I bet you support the troops too, yeah? When's the last time you actually did anything for any of them? When's the last time you gave back at battered woman, animal or homeless shelter? You don't. You play League of Legends, and you're probably a kid. People that try to use your guilt to get money from you do not care about you, they care about themselves. Do yourself a favor and don't care about them.

I remember when I got my first apartment and some dudes came knocking on my door saying, "hey man, I'm gonna get fired if my boss over there in the van doesn't see some people let me in to show them how this vacuum works, you don't have to buy anything just make it look like you are interested in my spiel."

I had just gotten back from Iraq, so I was trying to re-antiquate myself with society. I said sure. All I lost was 90 minutes of my time, and some guy getting pissed that I somehow wasted his time for not buying a $2,000 vacuum. People that guilt you to get you to do anything are experienced at manipulating people into business transactions, which is exactly what a YouTube/AdSense account is. Do yourself a favor and watch the other videos that guy has up before you get all holier-than-thou on me.

Here let me give you a rational example that even you can follow.


My real name is Timmy Jenkins. I live at 264 East Russell Place, San Antonio, TX and im Dying of cancer. I have Osteosarcoma and will be dying in 2 months. But please watch all my Youtube Videos as i would love nothing more than my works to be heard. Here's my channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/Jumpinthepack

Now then without even knowing me, you'd know that's bull right ?

Now when given even less to work with and the OP wanting everyone to believe his story if your first reaction isn't wait... why is there no proof, no citation, no validation what's wrong with you ?

No, instead my first reaction should be Oh that poor guy, ill go click the errant link... Somehow that's appropriate ?

See why people have a wait what, reaction now.... The OP did nothing to prove and frankly the research he claimed to have done is laughable but thats fine. I can post spurious links to websites too.

Here's the Mayo Clinic : http://www.mayoclinic.com/
Here's Red Cross: http://www.redcross.org/
And here's for the feels: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GggY4TEYbk
Or a better question: now that we've disagreed with them, will they like our YouTube videos when we start dying?

No, right? Because we don't deserve it, and you're so righteous and vengeful.

Wow, they sure are better people than us!

A younger version of me would upload that video on my channel just to prove a point, put ten other people will have done that before this time tomorrow. Money makes the world go round, and life goes on without you.

Everyone's so mad. Just go to this link instead. Sheesh.

http://www.childrenscancer.org/zach/

O ****, if you buy his album you'll be funding the evil Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund. Don't do it guys, this guy just wants your money so he can spend it on cocaine and hookers. I bet he uses it on hunting trips also. All shootin' rabbits and such. The most adorable rabbits.

**** guys. I bet he went and rolled around in a patch of cancer just so he could steal from us.

UPDATE: I think he's actually a robot, we need to warn the doctors.

The Good Guy, I'd give him every penny I got if it would make the smallest difference. Was simply pointing out that fact, that there might be 0 money in this to the thick head. I wouldn't mind at all, if that video made a ton of money and it was spend to fight cancer for instance, that would be lovely.
I know not everybody is like that, and I thank you for your posts, even if they are being put down by others.

Which sadly only shows how illogical you are acting still. Did you even click the link in OP's post? Because it's not the Child's Cancer homepage, it's an actual video of him doing his first recording. Your comparisons are poor, and reflect only on how you are basing this off of emotion (namely, distrust of people on the internet) instead of logic.

Read the description of the video

"Mike Rominski - Video and Editing - Woolly Rhino Productions"

I even said this before.

but it isn't the same video that is on the YouTube channel which was linked first and the main point of this post. The kid gets nothing from the views on the YouTube channel. The story in the OP and the one on the cancer website don't even match.

and lol, you said distrusting people on the internet is not a smart thing to do. You're right. Hey, want to click on this Chinese link for me? It's for my kid brother, he's Chinese and he's dying of cancer.
